New for the 2016 Conference! These sessions are 10 minutes in length, and will be timed by a moderator. We schedule 5 presentations back-to-back during a 60 minute concurrent time slot with time for questions and answers at the end. 

1. Creating Innovation Spaces in the Workplace (Michael Rodriguez) 

Library innovations are often framed as public facing and presented in terms of technology adoption and makerspaces. Every bit as essential are spaces for innovation in the workplace. This lightning talk makes the case for spaces as vital to creating and sustaining innovative and intrapreneurial cultures within libraries. Intrapreneurial staff lead innovation within organizations, but above all they must create spaces, physical and virtual alike, for innovation to be led by peers. So how can libraries create spaces for inspiring and driving internal change leadership? How can library administrators and staff recalibrate often traditional, cluttered, unengaging, cubicle-based workspaces so as to foster creative and collaborative problem solving? Fast-paced and motivating and rooted in visuals and examples, this presentation touches on everything from office layouts to agile development frameworks. The talk aims to demonstrate to library leaders at all levels why and how to design or recalibrate workplace environments to foster intrapreneurship. The talk will highlight the positive outcomes for the organization, staff, and users alike. Attendees will leave this session with a clearer understanding of the value of innovation spaces and how to design and implement those spaces at their own workplaces.

2. Viz-Data's For You: Making Acquisitions Count (Jeffrey Sowder) 

Looking for a new approach to raising the profile of your acquisitions unit using unconventional metrics that reveal work often hidden by traditional statistics? This session presents a case study of an academic library acquisitions manager taking a new direction with statistical gathering and reporting. Learn how Data Visualization and the Viz-Data outlook can refresh the way your data is gathered and shared. Boost your team's image by showing the work being done in inviting and engaging ways.  

3. Using Authoring Tools for Data Sharing (Lisa Zilinski)

Publishers are increasingly requiring authors to share research data, software code, analysis pipelines, simulations, and other supplemental documentation associated with published articles. Many times, publishers do not provide guidance on what information needs to be shared, how the information should be shared, how these materials should be linked to one another and any associated publications, or how to pay for depositing and preserving the information. In the current publishing landscape, data and analysis protocols or code, typically included as supplementary materials as part of a PDF, is not easily reusable, given the time-consuming need to copy and paste in order to digitize, potentially creating errors. Even when the data is accessible and downloadable by a researcher, it loses context and is not discoverable if there is no corresponding metadata specifically for the data, or if the original article does not indicate that there is data within. This session will demonstrate an example of a workflow that leverages authoring tools such as emacs and org-mode to automate data sharing through embedding data and code into the published output, providing researchers with the means to integrate data and code into technical writing and automatically include metadata into the final document.

4. Tracking Link Origins in a Discovery Maze: the NISO Community Strikes Again! (Nettie Lagace) 

Tracking Link Origins is a new NISO project, approved by NISO Voting Members in Spring 2016.  This working group is investigating options for full reporting of link origin information, when users connect to a publisher's content via a discovery service.  Typical web log analysis may obscure this origin information or report only the "last stop" of the request, typically a link resolver. Full reporting will enable content providers, libraries, and discovery providers to measure true success of their work supplying metadata and content to this environment. The working group's investigation focuses on link resolver pathways, and potentially improving the implementation of the NISO OpenURL standard, while including analysis of link routes which make use of DOI/handle servers. The audience will learn about this new NISO activity and be able to provide feedback for the working group to consider. 
5. The Role of Academic Librarians in Ending the Reproducibility Crisis (Donna Gibson, Steven Altieri)

Studies show that as little as 10% of scientific papers can be reproduced. But why is this happening? And how can you, as an academic librarian, a scientific publisher, or a member of the scientific research community, help to bring this reproducibility crisis to an end? We’ll be discussing how academic publishers and librarians can advance the productivity, efficiency, and reproducibility of scientific research.
